    You probably can't -- although you can call law firms in the hope of finding a lawyer who is interested.

    If you cannot afford a lawyer to represent you in your criminal case, you can request a court-appointed lawyer. If you can afford a lawyer, it's reasonable for the lawyer who represents you to want to be paid.

    Before hiring a lawyer for criminal defense, you need to be very careful. First of all you should look for a lawyer's not only experiences but winning experiences. Just find out in which state the lawyer usually represents the clients. Because each state has different laws. Only hire the attorney who has experience within your state. Don't hire an attorney without completely knowing his specifications.

    Article: How to hire a criminal defense lawyer.

    Most criminal defense lawyers work in only one state. There is no source of data for "winning experiences", nor would such a statistic have much significance given that the vast majority of criminal prosecutions end with a plea bargain.

    1.) Pick up phone (PHONE. Not email. Phone)
    2.) Ask your question
    3.) Repeat until someone agrees.
